Named Scholarships (Endowments)
With an Endowment, you can create a Named Scholarship that will last into the future and your generosity will be recognized for many generations. Every person, unit, or organization that contributes $50,000 may have a scholarship awarded in their name or a name of their choice. Named Scholarships can be funded in a number of ways.
